Vegetarian Curry Burgers

A very good alternative for the pre-made burgers in store!

They used to be good....the burgers in store. But i start to believe they are not anymore. Far too salty and i wonder what else they put in it besides soya and all these other things on the label.
For a while i went buying my burgers in the Bio store. They are not that bad....but i could not find the taste i wanted. I like spicy, curry, chili etc.....something asian style. I simply could not find it and i started to think about making those myself.

Lately i bought myself a Food Processor and that gave me so much more possibilities for making something mixed. Cause in the blender you can only mix wet ingredients. So a Food Processor was on my list for some time as you can grind anything. 
I got myself the Kitchenaid 13 cup from and i believe they have the best price around!

Every saturday i make homemade fries in my Philips Airfryer and we were always struggling what we should eat with that, so i started to make my first burgers last weekend and they were simply delicious! 
How on earth did i only start to make them now? As they were much tastier than from store. Almost like a taste explosion. You can season them in any way you want. Do you want to use spicy can. Do you want to use soft can. You want to add you favorite can. So much freedom you get here. it’s a real play garden for me :)
All you need is a food processor.


400 gr chickpeas 
1 zest of lemon
juice of 1/2 lemon
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp of curry (spicy or soft)
Small bunch of coriander chopped
1 free-range egg
100 gr fresh bread crumbs
1 medium red onion (diced)
1 tbsp of good olive oil


Get your food processor out from the dust and start mixing your bread in the smaller bowl. Mix it finely as you need that for the hold and outside of the burgers. Set aside.

Then in the large bowl add the drained chickpeas, lemon zest + juice, cumin, the chopped coriander, the egg, curry powder, pepper and salt.
Pulse a couple of times, but not too smooth, about 8 times. You still want some bite.

Scrape into a bowl and add 85 gr of the mixed bread crumbs. The rest you keep aside.
Also add the chopped onion and gently stir till everything comes together.
Form the mixture into 4 burgers using your hands or a burger press and press the remaining bread crumbs on both sides of the burgers and let chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.

TIP : if you use a burger press, use parchment paper, so it does not stick too much.

Heat some oil in a frying pan and fry the burgers for about 4 minutes on each side. Gently turn over the burgers, so they don’t fall apart. Keep the heat on medium, so they don’t burn.

These burgers are delicious and contain all the vitamins you need.
